    Imposter

    Imposter

    Start Date: Friday 11/16/2018 — End Date: Saturday 12/22/2018
    Admission:Free

    Imposter
    An Installation of Discrimination and Oral History by Alicia McDaniel
    16 November - 22 December 2018

    The Brown Paper Bag test, established in the early 1900s, was used to segregate People of Color in the United States until the 1970s. If someone’s skin color was lighter than the paper bag, they were admitted into white spaces. When People of Color are born with lighter complexions, a frequent occurrence, they access certain privileges associated with “passing” as white. Artist Alicia McDaniel’s grandmother attempted to pass herself off as white by rejecting her Latino/Indigenous identity, customs, language, and bleaching her skin daily.

    “Imposter” references how McDaniel felt within her own communities as a white passing Person of Color and is a nod to the Imposter Syndrome where she has felt that her accomplishments were achieved because of her appearance/skin color. This emanative exhibition originates within McDaniel’s and her family’s’ different experiences with racial profiling, skin privilege, and assimilation. She utilizes materials that reference systematic forms of oppression such as the Brown Paper Bag Test as a point of departure for contemporary instances of colorism and racism that still exist.
